The organisation that I have decided to investigate is JS Sainsbury?s, I have chosen to analyse Sainsbury?s because they are a respectable and successful supermarket chain, who own almost twenty per cent of the market. Businesses communicate by sharing information. Information is data that is accurately and timely.

Written information is vital at Sainsbury?s and is used throughout the business. An example of written information is a bank statement which is an external piece of information that comes from the accounts department within Sainsbury?s.

Conclusion

This is usually a type of verbal information as the customer is either speaking to customer services in person or on the phone but it can also be written information as a customer may write a letter or email.

Having a good customer services department like Sainsbury?s also gives the business a better reputation which is vital in a competitive market. In this essay I have looked at the different types of business information and how they are used by Sainsbury?s. Business information is vital for Sainsbury?s as it is used in all levels and aspects of the business and it is needed to understand how a business is progressing. I have also looked at the different ways in which Sainsbury?s communicate whether it?s verbal or written information. Communication is again important in all aspects of the business but especially in the day to day for example Customer service staff have to deal with customers on the phone all day using verbal communication. ...read more.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

4 star(s)

****
A good attempt at quite a difficult unit. The requirement is to explain the different types of methods of communication and while there could be more detail, reasonable understanding is shown. There are no examples of multimedia communication and this could have been considered more carefully.
